Wine Type: Red Wine

Country: Spain

Region: Ribera del Jucar

Grapes: 100% Tempranillo

Winery Tasting Notes: Ruby-red color. Aromas of ripe fruit toast and spices. Taste deep, powerful, well-traveled and highly persistent. It has well-integrated oak, ripe black fruit and a palate with plenty of tannins that will secure a long development in bottle

James Suckling: “Intense blue fruit with some violet and tar undertones. It’s medium-bodied with firm, polished tannins and a flavorful finish. Drink now.”

International Wine Report: “The 2018 Bodegas Magdalena Sueno opens to aromas of dark berries, cherries and plums, along with spices, licorice and earthy nuances all taking shape. On the palate this possesses a medium body backed by velvety tannins which glide all the way through the spice-tinged finish. A wonderful wine to approach early or let evolve with a few more years of bottle aging.”
